Inspired by quotes from the representatives of implemented projects in the Estonia-Latvia programme, the Joint Secretariat has made a presentation with useful tips and wise thoughts for applicants in the programme 2014-2020. We hope that this information will help you in the phase of the idea development, as well as in the process of project implementation and reporting later on.
If you are interested in background information about the programme, please scroll down for the programme document and specific information in relation to specific objectives.
The new programme is thematically much more focused than the previous Estonia-Latvia programme. One of the key elements, which define the thematic focus, is the set of result indicators of the programme. As all the supported projects need to contribute to fulfilment of result indicators, please check the documents below, which explain, how the baseline and target values of result indicators were established.
Education, training, skills’ development and ICT developments are considered as horizontal modes to achieve the objectives of all priority areas.
In March and April 2015 the JS organised launching events of the programme 2014-2020. Please read more at http://www.estlat.eu/news/programme-news/launching-of-the-programme-2014-2020/.
